President Donald Trump switched on a & # 39; family photo & # 39; at the G20 summit in Japan on Friday greetings with a grinning Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman.
The two men could be seen during the conversation while the world leaders gathered on a single stage for the traditional photo op.
The Saudi crown prince has been under increased control since the murder of the Saudi dissident and columnist Jamal Khashoggi of Washington Post. The CIA reportedly concluded that he ordered the murder.
